    I am really surprised he got off with just probation. Either way this may help free up a draft pick for another position. I liked this pick last year. Lets hope he learned his lesson and wants to redeem himself by creating havoc for off. lineman instead of the streets of Pittsburgh. I love Big Snack but his time is up.

    If this kid can get his head screwed on straight, he could be a contributor. I could envision a Heyward, Ta'amu, McClendon starting DL starting in 2014.

    The Steelers looked to be suffering from poor discipline last season, Ta'amu's actions being a case in point. Hopefully the Steelers are stepping on this now & he can turn things around, but Chadman suspects he's not only on probation with the law, but also the Football Team. Would not be surprised if he is put under even more strenuous pressure in TC to essentially, kick his bum back into line.

    If the Steelers were not in a pickle at NT, would he still be a Steeler?

    There must be something they like to keep him through all this but then why would they release him like they did during the season?
    After releasing him, they watched a replay of his arrest on tape and liked his short-area quickness, so they brought him back.
